Hi, I am pretty hopeful about the new FF with GeckoView. Using it for a bit it seems pretty good, but there are a few issues (79.1.0-beta.1)

First of all, there have been some layout issues, particularly noticeable on Twitter (I do not use apps where a viable mobile site exists). On Twitter, if I press the "retweet" icon it has a little slider that comes up from the bottom with options to just retweet or retweet with comment. In this version, but not in 68.11.0, that slider jitters up and down a bit. Usually if you scroll up or down slightly it then stabilizes, but even then it can be hard to hit the correct option, as if the visual and the interaction area are not quite aligned.

Aside from that there are some UI/UX issues.

On site where there are apps available (bing, twitter, FB, others), FF puts a blue dot notification badge on the triple dot dropdown menu, if you open it it will have an item to "open in app" or "download app" (depending on if installed or not). I don't mind the menu item being there, even though I almost never want it, but I need a way to turn off that blue dot - all such notification badges are very distracting to me, I either respond to them right away (e.g. messages) or I turn them off totally.

The other big issue is tabs, the newer tab layout wastes far too much space, the one in FF 68 was much better... and though I mostly hate taking UI direction from Chrome, mobile tabs is one rare case of them doing it well. Either of those layouts would be much better than the FF79 tab layout.

Oh, and just to make sure... whatever you do, please don't get rid of the option to put the address on the top, I really need that one. I hate to use a Blink browser, but I *will* switch if the URL bar is forced to the bottom.

Hi (new to this page)

Yesterday all was normal. Now ist the new FireFox .. To read my paper I have to go back to Chrome !

When reading my newspaper all is in just one long file .. That is: the view is just one long column with all the article one after another ! The full width of the screen isn't used - anymore ? Also another page (more dirty) have the same issue.

Is there a way to change default navigation from a Firefox Google search? Searching in browser is more reliable than searching with Google maps or Waze, but when you tap the navigate button it prompts me to download a different navigation app that I don't want. Is there any way to change this?

Hello,

There used to be an option in Firefox for Android to disable images loading while browsing over the mobile network. It was very useful to spare some mobile data for people who do not have large monthly data plan.

Why was this option removed from Firefox 79.0 ? Is there a possibility to enable it, like a hidden `about:config` option or an add-on ?

Thanks !

Firefox for Android - I received an update and update it. Now my most important adon is gone and cant be installed. To my knowledge i cant go back to a version that still supports it? Is there anything i can do to get the broweser back on my Android? I really dont like the new version due to its limitations with adons and enforcing to use the new quite worthless version and not the old ones. The new version cant even print to PDF. Even Edge on Android can do that as a basic feature. Any rumeors when its coming to Firefox Andorid? Has Mozilla gone Apple and EA style when it comes to enforment and controll...

The addon is https://addons.mozilla.org/sv-SE/firefox/addon/print-friendly-pdf/ https://www.printfriendly.com/extensions/firefox

In previous versions of Firefox, there were back and forward arrows to navigate to previous and next pages.

A single tap on the arrow would take you to the previous or next page. A long press would display the sequence of previous / next pages opened in the same tab.

With version 79, there is now only a forward arrow and the long press option does not seem to be available any longer. Is there a way to bring it back or find an alternative?

Firefox, until the last update, was the only one android browser that which allowed the choice for select what camera, frontal or rear, to use for videoconferencing. Removing this feature was a very stupid thing, so the only thing that i can do is the downgrade . Why you do that?
